Spotify has announced that its dedicated Pride hub is back just in time for the Sydney Gay & Lesbian Mardi Gras this weekend.

The hub, #PressPlayForPride, is dedicated to celebrating diversity and intersectionality of LGBT+ artists and their allies, covering an array of music genres and themes.

Playlists on the hub include ‘Mardi Gras Party’, ‘Alternative Pride’, ‘Pride Classics’, as well as playlists curated by LGBT icons such as Troye Sivan, Tegan & Sara, Alan Cumming, Adam Lambert and Kelly Osbourne.

Spotify is not one to shy away from supporting diversity and inclusion, having introduced a gender non-binary option both in its job application process and during the platform sign-up flow last year.

The music streaming giant also introduced ‘Queer Rap’ education on its platform – an open segment that aims to highlight that not all rap is gay offensive.

Spotify has also been nominated for two categories at Australia’s first LGBT Awards, which will be held in Sydney tonight.

Kate Vale, managing director at Spotify Australia and New Zealand, said the company is proud to champion diversity within its offices and the community.

“While there’s much more work to be done, we have a number of different initiatives to support LGBT+ rights within our company, our platform and our community, and we are thrilled to be recognised for our work in this space,” she said.

“We hope our staff and fans have a fantastic, safe and wonderfully colourful Mardi Gras.”
